Om shanti,

The first step of meditation is to connect to yourself as an eternal being of light, full of peace, love, and purity. The next step is to connect to the Supreme Soul and fill up with His unlimited power. The Third stage of meditation is to shower light out into the world and onto all living beings. This is the way to peacefully transform the self and so the world. With practice it becomes light and easy to meditate.

Good luck, and Best wishes

Dear Dawson,
Purity is a deep topic. Below is a brief explanation. Soon, we will post a video on the topic on our website: releaseyourwings.org
Purity means innocent of the vices–like a new baby. No thought of harming anyone or polluting anyone. Another aspect of purity is not having any illusions or deceptions. In our meditation we 1) understand the nature of the soul is pure. 2) recollect that my original form is pure and remember God as the Ocean of Purity. We can change our purity by changing our attitude. For eg, a simple attitude to hold toward everyone is of brotherhood. Om Shanti
# dawson 2011-08-01 23:01
can you please explain to me more what that PURITY is that we explore during our meditation... i am just a beginner on meditation and i know it can help me in my everyday life to use my soul instead of my body to think better.

Dear BK Team,
Thank you for providing the information on meditation I was quite impressed with the knowledge that you can meditate with your eyes open. I have been considering giving up meat for sometime, but I am conscious that it is a quick source of protein and iron etc. I am working on it!
All the best to you and the team at BK Office.

Kind regards,

Sister Shireen

Dear Manuela,
Greetings. In answer to your question: But can’t I meditate with my eyes open? I’m guessing you meant to say, “closed.” It is a recommended practice of the Brahma Kumaris to meditation with our eyes open because of the following reasons:
1. We can meditate more intensely
2. We can bring our meditation practice into daily living.
3. The chances of falling asleep are less.
Even though it might seem harder in the beginning to keep the eyes open, it is well worth the practice because, it becomes easier and you will be able to meditate while doing other things.
Warm Regards,
# Manuela 2011-05-19 01:12
thank you. But can`t I meditate with my eyes open?
